May be the best Mex I have ever had. I even got over the plastic utensils and no cervesa. Hard to find without signage. It's across from the Catholic school.

Terrifically original and traditional, the real deal, grandma's menu grandpa trying to take the credit, family restaurant that would look like an attempt to be hipster anywhere else but Laredo, it is not the only place to eat in this town, there are a couple of other stops, but by far the best.

Found El Meson on Trip Advisor. There is no sign-we followed the Trip Advisor directions and got there just fine. It was an adventure in family, friendliness and food...all good! The menu is in Spanish. We asked the precious girl helping us about their specialties. She was the owners oldest grand daughter and couldn't have been more helpful in recommending... More

Menu is small but very tasty and affordable. Parking is very, very limited, but if you are shoping downtown stop there and have the soup, great.

Don't look for a sign for this little place because there isn't one! Locals know and flock here for lunch, the only meal served. Located in a historic building in the shadow of the old San Agustin Parochial School, it is charming and friendly and the food is wonderful. Yes, the silverware is plastic, but go for the food and...

You can order the small plate or the regular plate. They have flautas de pollo, carnitas guisadas, and ribs and many other dishes. My mom loves their potato soup. Meal is... More
